27″ Quad-Core iMac

27 inch iMac

I have been wanting to make the switch to Mac for a while. The only reason that I have remained on Windows is because of the few games that I play. Maybe sometime in the not-so-distant future, after the upcoming move, I will buy a 27″ quad-core iMac. Watch the video; about halfway through I noticed that I had my mouth open.

Guardian Maximus from OWC

Guardian Maximus

This is the ultimate RAID1/Mirrored data redundant storage solution! The only thing it does not have is eSATA. You can buy the case by itself or with a combo of WD GreenPower or Raptor drives. If you already have 2 identical harddrives, it will cost less than $150 for the case. I really want 2 of the 2TB+2TB solutions, which are about $680 each. Buy from OWC.
